There are so many things you can do with summer corn, but if you haven't thought about eating it for breakfast, let us persuade you...

We grew up eating this dish on weekend mornings, although it usually involved canned corn. Now we use fresh when it's in season, microwaving it for a few minutes, then slicing it off the cob and into the skillet.

A big pad of butter, some salt and pepper, and it's good to go -- juicy, sweet corn nestled into peppery scrambled eggs. We just ate it for breakfast and are strongly considering a repeat performance over the weekend.

Does anyone else eat corn and eggs together? Or corn for breakfast?
